Air is one of the three essential needs in order to make it from underneath the rubble. Everything to do with the brain. Breathing is controlled by the medulla oblongata. Consciousness is the first step to overcoming any trauma. During my traumatic experience I was getting air but the enclosed, gripping situation led me to believe I was not getting enough oxygen. It was slowly sucking the life out of me. We breath so effortlessly in life, never counting our breaths or fearing where our next breath is coming from. it’s not until your air supply is threatened that we are conscious of needing oxygen, svn treatments or inhalers. Underneath the rubble is where I became aware of my breathing pattern and had I not had an adequate supply or good “baseline health” I may not have been able to recover.
